Mitch was always so sweet, so kind he was my whole world. Mitch had the most beautiful eyes I had ever seen, so blue. When I first met Mitch in April 2000, I knew the year would change. I was very depressed before I met him. I would watch wrestling 24/7 and dress in all black. I looked like a boy and didn't care about myself. Mitch made me want to be a better person. I changed my whole appearance. I started doing things out of the house and every time I saw him it would light up my day. June of 2000 I took Mitch to six flags. It was one of the best nights I had with him. We rode all the scary rides, the mind eraser and the superman ride it was so perfect. As we were going up I thought to myself, this is great, I am here with the person I love. The moon shone on the river it was a real pretty night. I will never forget the $20.00 meal I had to pay for him. I got pictures of us together, we also went swimming and we walked and talked and talked. Mitch said that it was the best day he had in along time and gave me a hug. He also won me a teddy and 2 light savers which at night we played sword fighting, he seemed so happy. I never wanted the night to end that night we dropped him off I gave him 50 hugs I told him that I loved him and he whispered into my ear I love you too. I been waiting for him to say those words for a long time. I hold my teddy close to me and have pictures of him around my room. I stay strong for him for every day he misses. I will wait for my angel. I will never forget him and I will always love him.

I remember Mitch as being the one who always made people laugh. He was also very talented in many ways. He always gave me great back massages which was one of them. I remember him always writing in a little notebook for his music because he would write his own lyrics. I'll never forget the day he rapped to me in Mrs. Duncan's class. I almost cried because he did it so well. Mitch was the kind of person that would try to cheer me up if I was upset. He always made me feel special. I miss Mitch very much and I hope that one day we will meet again.

I've known Mickey since we were little kids. Our parents were friends. We practically grew up together. He was such a cheerful boy when he was younger. Always full of energy. He never had any trouble putting a smile on even the grouchiest persons face. He was a character alright. I remember as I got older, I moved across town. It just so happened that some of this friends, the Emerson's lived right next door. Being that I spent most of my time over their, I grew to be good friends with Mick. I remember we would all walk over to the field at Gilbert High School, and just be crazy, released energy like kids usually do, then we'd all walk back home and get yelled at for being out so late. We used to have so much fun. Then in 97'I moved to New York to live with my mom. I kind of lost touch with everybody. When I would visit I was sure to see Mick their. Eventually my life move on in New York just like most of the gang moved on. Mickey ran into some bumps that he thought were to big to hurdle. I wish Mick could have seen that life gets better. We learn from the hard times. I didn't find out about Mick's death until March of 2002. I wish I could have been around during the events leading up to this. So that he would have known that he wasn't alone. I have fallen into deep depression a few times myself, even contemplated suicide, but I'm sure glad that I didn't. On August 7th, I lost a friend, and what's worse, I never got to say good-bye. Hopefully this will help me to feel some closure, and it has definitely helped me to realize that this could happened to anyone. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. It does get better. So here's to Mickey, a friend, son, brother. I love you Mick. I'm sorry I wasn't their to help, but I'm sure your much happier now. Everyone misses you. Good-bye.
